HASH(0x8e8c0bb8) out of 5 stars Some Really Good Post Bop Here 9 Jan. 2008
By jomojomo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album of small group jazz features some stellar performances. The songs all have structure made of melody and rhythm, but there is some good improvisation to go along with it. The cover versions of Heart of Glass and We Are the Champions are fun and challenging. The original songs are super and filled with emotion and technically challenging performances.

This isn't avant guarde material, but it still is challenging jazz with just enough easy parts to make it accessible. I'm surprised Columbia dropped these guys, this music is so good and so sellable I think they could have built a real franchise here. Oh well, hopefully the independent road with give them some more freedom to experiement with their music.

While not as bad as most of their disks, this album does suffer from some of the effects of the loudness war; namely hypercompression, distortion, clipping, and brickwalling. This was done in an effort to get the average volume louder so listeners who had it in a playlist or a cd changer would hear the music at a louder volume. Unfortunately this has disastrous consequences for the sound quality. This album has an effect dynamic range of 8 dB, a good jazz disk should be around 14.

Look up 'loudness war' at wikipedia or google 'pleasurize music' for more info.

HASH(0x8e46fa50) out of 5 stars Experimental and unpredictable... but worth it for the cover tune 13 Jun. 2014
By Average Joe Camera User - Published on Amazon.com

If you're a fan of avant garde jazz that's a challenge to listen to, by all means, have at it! I purchased this disc for the cover of "we are the champions" and was not disappointed. However, despite the obvious musical talent of the band, the song structures were a bit too free for me. I would recommend spending a little time listening to the other tracks online to determine if this the sort of modern jazz for you.

and here the Bad Plus almost succeed
A Talented and above all, interesting, group
5-Stars if they had only somehow managed to substitute another track for "My Funny Valentine" which is their only clunker ( ! )

HASH(0x8ea3b4f8) out of 5 stars Well worth the download 7 May 2012
By Bruce A - Published on Amazon.com
I have to agree that the only song on this album that's not excellent is the odd cover of "My funny valentine", and even that one is worth listening to.
